Inside Ferrari’s F1 Trackside Fuel and Oil Lab – Shell



A look inside Ferrari’s trackside lab, where fuels and oils are analyzed before, during, and after each race for various reasons. Analysts will look to ensure the fuels and oils meet technical regulations, and also look for insight on the health of the engine based on the different metal molecules within the engine oil.

    That guy in the back looks so nervous.

    I wonder if oil analysis with a  gas spectrometer has a place for the every day commuter car .Would a test be cost effective for some insight on what's wearing down on your engine? or are dealers already performing these tests ?? that was cool knowledge thanks

    I always loved that F1 hasn't restricted the series to one particular aspect, tires excepted. Fuel is one aspect of the series that isn't mentioned enough and has developed into something fascinating to me. It seems teams have developed partnerships with their fuel providers not only in maximizing performance, but also in hedging against penalties because of below par business practices.  From what I know about fuel refining and distribution, it is probably the one aspect of the petroleum business with the lowest profit margins- yes, poor performance before the race can telegraph.But it seems like science fiction to me that teams can pin down the depreciation of an engine in real time, which gives a whole new meaning to 'mapping,' yes?  Chemistry rocks.

    Thanks for the video, I love all that tech and engineering behind racing teams and cars!

    What's you're take in why some of constructors are having better luck than offers with the 2014 engines ?

    The Shell guy was like: God damn it I never thought Ferrari engine sound will annoy me because these guys can't hear me talking… btw this video is so enlightening, it's cool to see the background of all that.

    As he said that they mix two types of fuels to race…can we do the same on road cars to make them more mileage effective of to run faster????????????

    BTW the guy in the white coat looks bewildered by it all hahaha !
